Default I have a conductivity meter

I'm looking for a nutrient solution for dummies approach. Where can I learn all I need to know to grow healthy plants? I have a conductivity meter and I haven't got a clue what it all means. I'm completely confused by all the terminology eg.) TDS, EC, CF, ppm, ppt, microSiemens, milliSiemens etc.etc. My meter reads in milliSiemens. Can I use this? and What would an ideal reading in milliSiemens be for my blooming nutrient, and vegetative nutrient. Please advise. Thanks much.

EC - Electrical Conductivity measures the rate a small electrical current flows through a solution. Usually measured in microomhos per centimeter (u.Mho/cm) or microsiemens per centimeter (u.S/cm) 1.0u.Mho/cm = 1.0u.S/cm
How many millis are in a micro? Now you got me confused. Get back to you later.
